Surah Al-Tur the 52nd Surah f the Quran, contains 49 verses and is located in the 27th Juz. The Holy Prophet receives Makki and the 76th chapter (PBUH).
The name of the Surah comes from the fact that God swears in the first verse beside At-Tur (Mount Sinai).
A holy location in Palestine is Mount Sinai. On that mountain, the prophet Moses (AS) had a conversation with God and got the revelation. The Quran has twelve mentions of the name At-Tur.
The main message of Surah At-Tur, according to Al-Mizan Exegesis of the Quran, is warning people who display hostility against the truth. It emphasizes that the sentence is inevitable and warns skeptics about the divine punishment that will befall them on the Day of the Resurrection.
The Surah then goes into further detail about some aspects of the punishments as well as some aspects of the blessings bestowed to people who enter paradise, those who behave well in this world, and who have faith in God.
The Surah’s content can be broken down into six sections:
The opening lyrics, which contain a few expletives, discuss the topic of divine punishment as well as the burning of hell and the signals of Resurrection Day.
Another section emphasizes the heavenly rewards that await the righteous in paradise.
It also discusses the prophetic role of the Holy Prophet (PBUH) and briefly addresses the charges brought against him by his adversaries.
This chapter also emphasizes the oneness of God and how to demonstrate it with convincing logic.
The Surah mentions the Day of Judgment once more and details some of its characteristics.
The Surah instructs the Holy Prophet (PBUH) in the last verses to be patient and steadfast as well as to praise and thank God. Additionally, it promises God’s backing for the Holy Prophet (PBUH).
